My eyes will always light up at the sight of durians all lined up along Geylang or Sims Avenue.

I never quite understood why people hated the smell or taste of durians. It’s soft, creamy, sweet and savoury. Like what more do you want in a fruit?

The King Of Fruits

If you haven’t already noticed, the weather has been ridiculously hot recently. The short walk from the MRT to the office has got me drenched in my sweat.

Thanks to the hot weather in Malaysia leading to a bumper crop, durian prices have dropped by up to 40%. That’s almost half the cost of the durian!

This is probably the only time I’m thankful for hot weather.

Durian lovers would typically wait for durian season which is usually from June – September. That’s when we’d feast on endless supply of durians.

So having an unexpected mini durian season in the middle of March is great for us who are impatient.

Durian sellers have taken their durians to Facebook so you can compare prices.

I mean seriously, $15/kg for MSW? That’s crazy cheap. Just last month, it’d cost you at least $25-$28/kg.

So beautiful. Just beautiful.

That’s it, I’m packing my bags. I’m off to get durians.

Some sellers say that prices might go even lower over the next couple of days however there are others who believe that prices could return to normal next week.

Honestly, with that kind of price tag, I’ll buy 5 MSW. Durian prices are always unpredictable so snag yourself a durian before it’s too late.

Some durian sellers are already selling out of MSW, so hurry and make reservations for your durians.

But in all honesty, as much as I love durians, is the weather going to chill anytime soon?
